Dicuss Data Categories
This category employs a broad definition of corruption. That means data collections covering behaviour or perceptions related to corruption, bribery, embezzlement or informal relations in a broader sense aimed at potentially illegitimate private gains can be included in this category.
This category covers all data collections related to the German Democratic Republic (1949 to 1990) and its legacies. The category "GDR research" is administered by the team of the "Mod-Block DDR" project, which receives financial support from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
This category presents exclusively results of representative, sample-based opinion polls. Polls are not necessarily countrywide, but cover at least a region or a large segment of the population. Polls have to adhere to established international standards.
This category covers data that fall within Security Studies field broadly defined, which along with armed conflict, international security, and peace & conflict resolution, also includes human security, food security and other aspects of traditional and critical security studies.
This category includes all data collections related to social policies, comprising social security programmes, pensions and health. The category also covers public perception and political debates about these issues. Please note that Discuss Data has a separate category for "education". The category "social policy" is administered by the team of CRC 1342 "Global Dynamics of Social Policy" at the University of Bremen.
